The ABC/Westover Bournemouth: 1937-2017

14 APRIL 2017

The ABC closed for good on the 4th January 2017 bringing to an end nearly eighty years of film exhibition on the site.

Soon its near neighbour the Odeon would also succumb as the new Odeon on the BH2 site in the town centre approached completion. The final film presentation at the ABC was 'Back to the Future', which was chosen by the public from a small list of films via a poll in the Daily Echo.
